Turf Toe is a painful foot condition when the big toe joint is hyperextended causing acute injury to the big toe and joint.
Hyperextension of the big toe joint causes the tendons and soft tissues in the foot to become inflamed causing pain and swelling in the area. Turf toe can also become a chronic problem if left untreated or upon returning to activities too soon.
Turf toe is common injury among athletes that play football, soccer, track, basketball, rugby and even tae kwon do.
If you have foot pain that is not improving or getting worse with activity, it's important to have your foot or ankle evaluated by a foot specialist as soon as possible.
